Thanks! Now let's see if they hold in dirt or not. If some Simple Green can clean them then I'll be good to go.

No I left them on the truck and used index cards and newspaper. Can do a better job if you take them off the truck but they still look damn good. Let me know if you want any tips on doing it. After doing it I found what ways seem to work best. I am very happy with how they turned out

I'm jealous. Your's came out awesome.
That's what I did. Worked fine. Just have to poke the plastic away from the wheel enough that it doesn't stick to what you're painting.

It might have been discussed, but I saw rustoleum's "flexidip" Anyone used that yet? They had some at home depot today in grey. Thought about buying a can just to try.

But I'll keep ya posted. Mine had rust on the end so that may affect it we will see.
Might have been me. Mine has been dipped black since I bought the truck last August, its perfect no bubbles or anything and didnt burn off etc.

After a few days the red started to uhh idk burn off. Which is weird. I was low on red so did first 3 coats in black then just enough red to cover total color. The black underneath is perfect but some of the light areas of the red came off.

Not sure if it's cuz it was to light or if the red is the issue. Going to leave it go for a few weeks and see if the rest of the red goes to shit

Probably the light coat getting eaten away by the fumes? Just taking a guess.

I did this once but with a thick layer of black and it stayed solid on the tail pipe.

Maybe try a thick coat of the red next time and see if that works. I like the red accents though, good job!

I did probably 5 coats on the tailpipe, of course its black and probably dirty too so that would help with me not seeing any changes.
